The range offers a superb finish for soft or hard wood.

According to an article on homemakersonline the top use goes to your geyser!
Energy Use is South Africa
Did you know that its more energy efficient to use a kettle to heat water for cooking than a pan on the stove? Did you also know that in many homes, lighting accounts for 17-20% of energy consumption?
The South African government and Eskom are making drives to encourage Solar Heating in homes to help take the load off the ever burdened grid. With ever increasing prices, people are also keen to find alternatives to grid power in their homes.

Let us know how that is working out for you so far. Do you feel its saving you money and improving your own efficiency?
